7 Untold Reasons Behind Why Titanic Actually Sank!!!
- There were not enough lifeboats in the ship
The ship has more than 100,000 passengers, but there were only 48 total lifeboats that Titanic carried. The owners of the company that constructed Titanic, did not add much lifeboats because they were not able to manage the space on the deck that was needed for the romantic dance spot. And anyway, it was not against maritime regulations too.
- Before Titanic sank, it was warned many times
There was no moon on that unfortunate night, and neither there were waves that would actually help to spot the icebergs nearby. But, they received warnings over six times through the wireless communicator on that particular night of the sinking. But this all warnings were unexpectedly ignored.
- The constructors never said that Titanic was Unsinkable
According to the US reports, the designer of Titanic Thomas Andrews claimed that The Titanic is “practically unsinkable.” This added to the tragedy happened and the press added it to make the tragedy sound more interesting. But, in fact the thing was proven as fate or may be just a myth that no one even verified.
- Ship did not claimed for help for an hour after collision
More lives could have been saved if the crew would have asked for help that night and not have made this tragic news silent for an hour. The ship’s crew had decided to not inform the communicators and send any signals for 45 minutes unless there the collision becomes totally fatal. There was even a ship closer to the Titanic after a collision that could have helped.
- The myth of Titanic never being christened
There was a superstitious myth people believed that the champagne was not cracked being hit on the hulk on the ship that caused bad luck. The company that constructed Titanic didn’t believe in any religious practices, so many of their ships, including Titanic was in fact christened with champagne.
- It’s proved that collision was due to fire
The evidence has suggested that the iceberg was not completely responsible for the sinking of Titanic, but in fact the hull was already weakened by the fire before the ship actually sank. This has been recently proven questioning the durability of the hull, that was not able to withstand the coal fire.
- Wrong spot was tracked on last call after collision
Probably one could consider it as The Titanic’s fate, but when the last SOS call was made it actually marked the incorrect location. Thus, it suggests that even if the rescue team could get that call immediately after it was being made, they would have never reached the correct destination anyway.
